speedometer (spelling) on my 79 is swinging 60 to 70 mph at steady hiway speed what do i need to look at to fix this.
Hey, mine is doing something similar. Please let me (us) know if you follow the advice of the guys above and how it works out for you, what the fix is.speedometer (spelling) on my 79 is swinging 60 to 70 mph at steady hiway speed what do i need to look at to fix this.
When I swapped the 85 MPH speedo for the 165 MPH unit, I just removed the clear plastic cover which allowed access to the speedometer and cable. I didn't have to do anything with the steering column.Hey Cool80, did you have to drop your steering column in order to get good access behind your speedo? I'm trying to pull out my cluster over the steering wheel today to replace my cable, and it doesn't look like I can pull the plastic housing all the way out without dropping the column.
So, you didn't even remove the gauge cluster? You could just reach up behind the dash to pull it out?For the speedo cable DON'T drop the steering column.
Feel under the dash and find the cable going to the speedo. There's a flat tension clip that the cable goes through. On the bottom side of the clip is a tab. Push in on the tab of the clip and pull the cable out.
I went out last night and did mine with one hand just so I'd be sure before I posted this.
When you put it back in, just push the cable in and it will click itself in place.
Yeah. I haven't had to do the Tach so that I'm not sure about. But the speedo comes right out, and goes right back in.So, you didn't even remove the gauge cluster? You could just reach up behind the dash to pull it out?
